I usually make my own fondant, but as I was walking throuh the store the other day, I noticed the tubs of DUff's fondant. I know what I can make my fondant for (and I like how it tastes and it is easy to work with), and Duff's fondant was 20 for a 2 lb. tub. THat seems expensive to me. Is it worth it? THe colors look amazing and very bright, but is it really that much better? Please let me know your opinion if you have worked with this fondant. THX.
I use it and love it. I buy it at Michael's with a coupon, but it is still expensive. With that said...I love using the black, choc brown, and red. They taste amazing, and it's so so so easy to work with. However...it does not dry out well at all (as in using for bows, etc), so I have to add gumpaste any time I am making bows and figures with it.
I make my own homemade (MFF) and love it, as well. But...Duff's is great for the colors!
So yes, if you don't mind the price, it is nice fondant.
Same here.....I buy it at Michaels with the coupons. I stock up when I get a "20% off entire purchase" coupon....Especially the black, red and pink. I found a tub of orange just before halloween too! Oh....and the chocolate brown tastes soooooo good! My favorite candy is a Tootsie Roll and this tastes just like one!!
It is very easy to work with but just as Getus said....it does not dry well so bows, figures, etc do not keep their shape unless you mix with gumpaste. One thing I do like about it is you can roll it out very thin and since it doesn't dry out it is much easier to work with.
I've changed quite a few of the "I hate fondant" people into fondant lovers with it!
Thanks for your posts on Duffs fondant. I make MFF too an love it. However I do not attempt to make red or black so knowing Duffs is good will help me when my cake supply is out of those colors.
My Michaels takes only one per day! I take my daughters with me!
Thanks all. I am goin to have to try it out now.
Duff's fondant is actually Fondarific. It is awesome fondant, very tasty and easy to work with. It is all I use on my cakes. Christy is correct in that it doesn't dry out like Satin or Fondx. I will usually keep that on hand to make fondant accents that I want to dry hard. When someone says they don't like the taste of fondant, I give them a taste of Fondarific and they have ALWAYS like the taste. You can roll it much thinner and it doesn't get dry out or tear like other does. I LOVE it!
I used it once and loved it! Great taste and easy to work with, but I find it too expensive, so I no longer use it.
I've used it a few times for colors I dont want to go through the trouble of mixing. Just purchased a tub of red with my 50% Michaels coupon. I added tylose to it for bows and it dried nicely.
Saw the black friday ad for Michaels...there are like 3 50% off coupons!!
I wait till Michaels' have 50%-off-single-item coupon, I subscribed to their email.
SO I print it out multiple times, and drag my hubby there every day of the week when 50% coupon is on
yeah.. I think I'm starting to run out of things to buy.
p.s. I didn't buy Duff's fondant, I still think that's pretty pricy.
Yes it's pricey... Fondarrific as wel; but renders lot more as you can get it really really thin without tearing or cracking. Colors are fantastic, flavor is so good an people actually eat it!!!
